Déjà Vu for BJP as Pilot rides bullock cart to protest fuel price hike

Jaipur: Rajasthan State Congress President, Sachin Pilot rode a bullock cart in Jaipur to protest the fuel price hike during the Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) regime. He was accompanied by hundreds of other Congress party leaders and workers. Some rode on bullock carts, while some on carts pulled by camels or horses to register their protest. Significantly, women came saddled on horses during the protest rally. Some had also demonstrated with gas cylinders. Petrol is being sold at Rs 73.20 and diesel is at Rs 62.86 per liter in the Rajasthan state capital. “Before coming to power, BJP had promised that inflation would. However,  when crude oil price is at lowest rate in international market, the price of petrol and diesel is at its highest in India,” Pilot said, as reported by PTI. Interestingly, before 2014,  BJP leaders protesting with bullock cart and gas cylinders against the fuel price hike, was a regular sight, when United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government was at the center. However, the major protest against fuel price hike has been registered only by the Rajasthan Congress, while rest of India, party leaders and workers are yet to hit street over it.
